INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Lilly Endowment Inc. has given $10 million
to the Salvation Army to help relief efforts following recent Gulf
Coast hurricanes and flooding in the Midwest.
The Indianapolis-based endowment says it's the biggest single
gift to the Salvation Army in this year's hurricane season and is
the same amount it donated after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Endowment president N. Clay Robbins says the damages caused by the
2008 hurricanes are "daunting and compelling."
Since 1949, Lilly Endowment has provided more than $50 million
in grants to the Salvation Army.
Hurricane Ike hit Galveston, Texas, on Sept. 13, less than two
weeks after Gustav damaged parts of the Gulf coast.
